How to map
|Mapping aeroway=taxiway and aeroway=runway as areas is disputed. You can join the discussion here and here.|
Sometimes in addition to mapping as a linear way, the outline of the taxiway has been mapped as an area with aeroway=taxiway + area=yes, however area:aeroway=taxiway has been suggested for this purpose instead.
Additional information can be specified using these keys:
- ref=* - for the name of the taxiway
- width=* - for the width of the taxiway (in meter), note this should specify the physical width of the taxiway on the ground, not the clearance.
- surface=asphalt/concrete/grass/... - physical makeup of the surface of the taxiway.
- aeroway=holding_position - as at holding positions on the taxiway.
